See cardiologist: Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) can be exacerbated by many conditions, typically those that stimulate the heart like, exercise, stimulant medications or foods like caffeine.

Take care. ...Read more
I have SVT and it rarely bothers me. I take propranolol daily to prevent episodes. Is it safe to consume a cup or two of coffee?
Would ivabradine help prevent reoccurrence of SVT? or would other β-blockers be better? Looking for option that don't lower blood pressure as much.
Ivabradine : There is little evidence for use of ivabradine in SVT. It might work but not enough evidence to recommend using it. ...Read more
Not herbs: Supraventricular tachycardia and other cardiac arrhythmias need to be evaluated and followed by a physician -- ultimately, probably a cardiologist. Certain medications and/or substances you're taking can cause or exacerbate this too. Though magnesium has helped some people with svt, i wouldn't rely solely on this or any herb. Your primary care doctor is a place to begin, and go from there. ...Read more

SVT: Paroxysmal svt which occurs rarely probably doesn't need drug to try and prevent. Svt that occurs more than once a month is worth treating and for some folks even if monthly or less. Treating infrequent arrhythmias takes a long time to know if the treatment is actually working, statistically if month svt can take 6 months to be sure meds working. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Indirectly: Inflammation on some parts of the lung that would cause pleurisy could irritate the heart and trigger an SVT. Usually, someone would be predisposed to the SVT for this to happen, and even in this case the connection between the two would be weak. Sometimes the chest pain can come from the SVT and be attributed to pleurisy instead. Sometimes the same underlying cause leads to both. See doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
ABSOLUTELY!: Alcohol can be directly toxic to the heart in sufficient quantities. Excessive drinking can cause any number of cardiac problems including svt. *i agree. In addition alcohol can lead to dehydration and electrolyte abnormalities - both of which can also contribute to arrhythmias.*. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Supraventricular tachycardia (svt) is largely caused by heart disease, heart failure, thyroid disease, congenital abnormalities or trauma. Svt is a blanket term that refers to any cardiac arrhythmia that begins above the heart's ventricles. The most common form of svt is atrial fibrillation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Short pr: The PR interval represents the time it takes for electricity to pass from the top to the bottom heart chambers. Normally, there's a delay in this passage, of up to 1/5th of a second; however, if the passage is too fast, or less than ~1/8th of a second, a short circuiting "bypass" tract may be present, which can lead to a SVT. Catheter ablation can cure these, so speak with a heart rhythm doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
SVT: Being overtired or overstressed does not cause svt. But if one is susceptible to svt, being overtired or overstressed can exacerbate the svt. Stress causes release of adrenaline into the blood stream which in turn can stimulate the hearts electricity and lead to svt. Same thing with being overtired, which may mean dehydrated and electrolyte imbalance, and lead to svt. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
